Mmmmmm, pizza....

I knew where the quote came from too, but now I'm glad the Bearman beat me to the prize.

If you're attempting to transcend material existence,
And you're hit by a big pizza pie,
That's satori!

If you liked that Resurgence article, here are a couple of other book-length perspectives that dig a little deeper: Time Wars: The Primary Conflict in Human History by radical neo-luddite Jeremy Rifkin and Faster: The Acceleration of Just About Everything by science writer James Gleick. I think they're both onto something, although I also think it's possible to have a rather romantic and patronizing view of life in the slow lane (like the simplistic Boell parable in the Resurgence article - odds are that sleeping peasant fisherman had actually gotten up at 4:00 AM to catch the tide).

That is a tough decision, especially since your significant other is Korean, and she must like being in her home country.

Wouldn't it be nice if you could live parallel lives? Then you'd never have to make such difficult decisions. You could split part of yourself off, tell it to take that path there while the rest of you went down another.

"Two roads diverged in a wood and I --
I took the one less traveled by"

would become:

Two roads diverged in a wood and I --
I took both"

If we could follow all paths, we wouldn't have the beauty and poetry that difficult decisions generate.

Good luck in your decision.

Original post here. Bonus points for telling me where the quote comes from - not the Rolling Stones one, the other one.
